After the announcement of the much-hyped Moto X smartphone, the Google-owned Illinois based company has hinted at developing Motorola tablets.

"That's something we are working on, but [there's] nothing specific to talk about right now," Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola told Engadget when asked about plans to manufacture the Motorola tablets.

It is said that the rumored tablet will be available to buyers via Moto Maker, the company's made-to-order website. This further gives room for speculation that like Moto-X, the tablet will also be customisable and would arrive in varied configurations. Only AT&T network has the access to Moto Maker for now.

Woodside also mentioned that the phablet-sized Moto device would be inspired by a few Moto X features such as "design cues, as well as technologies.."

The device will not be a continuation of Motorola's "Xoom" line of tablets, of which the recent shutting has been reported as a result of the company settling down on a lawsuit filed by the online payment processing firm in 2011,reported Techradar.

The new tablet is speculated to give competition to its sibling, Google Nexus 7, and one can assume the tablet to be the bigger version of Moto X.

In related news, Motorola Droid 5 pictures were recently leaked online by The New Cellphones. The expected specifications of the handset features a 4.3-inch HD (720p) display paired with 342 ppi pixel density.

Motorola Droid 5 is also rumored to run on Snapdragon dual-core Krait chipset along with Adreno 225 GPU for graphic support. A high in-built storage of 16 GB is expected to come with the handset supported by 1GB of RAM.

The device, according to the website, would support a 5-row QWERTY keyboard along with NFC and wireless charging feature.

The overall specifications of the device are not really impressive as it misses out on considerable amount of RAM, screen size and GPU, as compared to other mid-range devices. However, the handset is said to fit perfectly in the QWERTY keyboard family of smartphones.
